Marcus Browne on a permanent
An interesting development in the Marcus Browne rumour. The reliable Rich Cawley is suggesting a permanent deal for the 24-year old attacking midfielder from Middlesbrough.
Browne came through West Ham’s academy and was signed by Middlesbrough in July 2019, but has had a serious knee injury sustained in a cup game for Boro a year ago.
He starred at Oxford on loan and had scored 2 goals in 5 league appearances for Boro in The Championship before his injury. He hasn’t played a first team game since.
He may well fit the bill of an exciting youngster with good up-sell value, but let’s hope the medical is thorough and the deal has caveats.
If he passes a medical Browne could sign today.
